Mason Greenwood Man United

Former Manchester United star, Paul Parker has accused Marcus Rashford of holding Mason Greenwood back at Old Trafford.

Parker believes Greenwood is being held back by Rashford and deserves a run of games for Manchester United.

Greenwood and Rashford have been competing for a starting spot this season.

However, since Man United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick took charge, Rashford has started against Crystal Palace and Norwich, while Greenwood started both league games on the bench.

“He’s (Rashford) holding back Mason Greenwood,” Parker told Bettingexpert.

“I think Greenwood needs a run in that team. He’s a young boy, and there are stories about him leaving. That might be drummed up by his agent.

“I still believe that when you have good young players, they need to play. Because otherwise, they will lose their confidence.

“They will look at what they have been doing, they will be looking at what people are doing in front of them and ask themselves questions. When they start doing that, it’s negative and they’ll end up going backwards.

“You have to be careful of that with Greenwood. He needs not just to be coming on, he needs to start games and he needs someone to believe in him and play him regularly until the manager can see a bit of fatigue.”
